vacation and rigged this corvette up with a gps device. within six hours, the gps device alerted them that the car was in motion. so wftv sent their chopper up in the air to follow this corvette where it went. inside, they found the owner of the premier parking spot, jay nieves, and a friend. he took this thing home, left it there overnight. ran errands with this thing, took it to appleby's, ace hardware, put 61 miles on this thing. >> i feel like i'm watching ferris buehler's day off. >> nothing to worry about. >> this dog is walking on the back of the car, loading the car up with plywood. eventually, wftv's reporter, jeff deal, came in with his cameraman. this part is the best. >> whose car are you guys driving out there? >> mine. >> the red corvette. >> not driving anybody's car, why? >> you are driving that car all over town. >> what are you talking about? >> nieves plays dumb but then
reporter, jeff deal, shows him the video. >> do you recognize this road and those people in that car? >> we are not driving anybody's car. >> he is like, oh, crap. >> they are asking him, point blank, did you drive this car? >> no. >> how do you deny that? >> the question is, did he commit any crimes in doing this, since the people left their cars there? >> wftv is continuing to look just that, if he broke any laws. surely, this video could be used as evidence for the police. i want to warn you that this video is really difficult to watch, especially if you are an animal lover. we got this from app online.tv. this is in mon month county, new jersey. the man you are seeing is 23-year-old george mcel vain. as the surveillance video picks up, the first thing you see him doing is using an air compressor blowing air in the dog's face, agitating the dog. it gets worse. >> is he kicking the dog? >> egging him on too.
>> completely egging him on. after he kicks him, you can see him clinch the dog in the side of the face. >> poor guy. >> i am not defending his actions about you it is hard to tell, is he just sort of rough-housing with the dog? >> great question. keep watching what happens. >> he goes back and continues to try to agitate the dog. the dog finally has had enough. >> mcel vain runs and falls to the ground behind the trailer and the dog bites mcel vain. >> the dog probably thought, he punched me, i could bite him. that's how we was playing. >> i was thinking the same thing. it looked like maybe they are just doing some tough playing, some rough housing. the dog definitely got mad. i doubt this is his dog. >> this all happened on march 8th. mack el vain complained about this dog after it happened. the spca got ahold of this video and think this video vindicated the dog. they realized that mcel vain was, they think, taunting the dog. >> last week, he ended up
pleading guilty to one count of animal cruelty in front of a judge. he was fined $650. he was ordered into psychiatric treatment and barred from animal ownership for five years. >> you guys are watching the end of a wild crime spree by a pair being compared to a modern day bonny and clyde in cat tall ba county, north carolina. that jeep you see speeding around police cars was stolen and being driven by 36-year-old michael bagwell. police shot several rounds at that car, struck bagwell and his diana date. riding in the hedriv about another mile where police finally apprehend him and his girlfriend, nonlife threatening injuries from the gun shots. these two are lucky to be alive when the police are firing off a bunch of rounds and you get hit and it doesn't kill you.
>> officers claim that over the span of about two hours, the couple broke into six homs, stole five vehicles, rob two people and tried to kidnap a 16-year-old girl. they then led police on a chase and drove around two roadblocks. >> wow! that really does look like a modern day bonny and clyde. >> the road is so crowded. they are putting other officers in danger and citizens this danger. >> this went down about a yearing a. bagwell was indicted with 16 charges. his girlfriend was also indicted on 13 similar charges. it was in court where he pled guilty to more than a dozen of those charges. sometimes, big miracles come in very small packages. that happened in eastpoint, georgia, just south of atlanta. >> wow, i've decided to thank
